    I guess I should have expected it, but Plague was a lotgrossly detailed and harder to read than I expected and not in a good way I knew I was in for a heartbreaking read, but this is really nothing but a short story of a family s harsh misfortunes during a plague epidemic Which, I admit, sounds like it could be a good read, except it was simply too graphic Too quick of a disturbing tale and not enough depth to balance it It s an explicit story of a dying family Period We don t ev I guess I should have expected it, but Plague was a lotgrossly detailed and harder to read than I expected and not in a good way I knew I was in for a heartbreaking read, but this is really nothing but a short story of a family s harsh misfortunes during a plague epidemic Which, I admit, sounds like it could be a good read, except it was simply too graphic Too quick of a disturbing tale and not enough depth to balance it It s an explicit story of a dying family Period We don t ever get out of this boarded up house to see how the world is fairing other than just the knowledge that everyone is dying The few technical details we do get are fuzzy at best If the whole world is in the same situation, I doubt a doctor would have time for house visits, let alone bother wrapping up most of a house in plastic Is that supposed to keep the plague from spreading Should we tell the bacteria that that one open window is off limits But really, if you seriously want to see a family die from the plague and I mean play by plays of diarrhea, vomiting, and maggots eating their baby s face not effing kidding , just use Google images, yeah Yes it will be as gross as this book Also, you may need professional help I know I surely want some to get these images out of my head It s been a week since I finished reading this book and I still get grossed out by some of the mental images that will surely never leave my mind If you re a parent though even if you re not you do not want to read story about a child suffering like this A child that would rather die than keep being in such agonizing pain I m sorry but I just can t deal with that I wanted to DNF it very badly in several instances but I was also curious at how the author had decided to end this one I was disappointed by that, too, not surprisingly For one I had completely seen it coming fairly early on And secondly it was a tad forced to give us that ray of hope or whatever.As far as everything else The characters are not exactly realistic nor likeable The mother spendstime arguing with herself or having sex in the shower instead of being with her dying son sleeping or not As a mother I cannot fathom being able to function or think about anything else if I was in that situation The father was just irritating, plain and simple The writing was not my favorite, either I felt it was choppy at times and lacked the emotional depth that this story deserved So instead of being emotional, I was simply nauseous by the sheer horrifying nature of it all This book may have traumatized me Excuse me while I go hurl An advance copy was provided by the publisher for review.Forof my reviews, visit my blog at Xpresso Reads

    This book is not for the light hearted and it is probably one of the most harrowing reads I ve undertaken in a while The author gives a brutal insight to one family whose four year old son is contaminated with the bubonic plague Once the child has been diagnosed, the military seal the family in their house, what unfolds is a story of a family who must accept the fate bestowed up on them There are moments where the descriptions are incredibly graphic, so if you don t have a strong stomach I wo This book is not for the light hearted and it is probably one of the most harrowing reads I ve undertaken in a while The author gives a brutal insight to one family whose four year old son is contaminated with the bubonic plague Once the child has been diagnosed, the military seal the family in their house, what unfolds is a story of a family who must accept the fate bestowed up on them There are moments where the descriptions are incredibly graphic, so if you don t have a strong stomach I would avoid reading this book.A couple of moments in the book brought tears to my eyes and despite the subject matter there s an underlying theme of hope Once I started I couldn t put it down and managed to read it in less than day, it s well written, has plenty of shock factor and will leave you asking what if The only reason I couldn t give it a full five stars was because I felt that the ending was a little cheesy this just didn t work after all the moments of desperation in the book and I felt the ending was rushed a little bit.HOWEVER it is great book, very harrowing and worth checking out if you re after a book that you want to read in a day

    Plague by Lisa Hinsley is a novella with a huge impact Johnny and Liz know their son Nathan is sick, they also realize that it is a new strain of the bubonic plague Authorities are telling people that the outbreak isn t spreading but clearly, as seen in their neighborhood, the authorities are lying Liz, Johnny and Nathan find themselves trapped in their home which has been literally boarded up tight to keep them inside A government watcher is supposed to help them should they need anything Plague by Lisa Hinsley is a novella with a huge impact Johnny and Liz know their son Nathan is sick, they also realize that it is a new strain of the bubonic plague Authorities are telling people that the outbreak isn t spreading but clearly, as seen in their neighborhood, the authorities are lying Liz, Johnny and Nathan find themselves trapped in their home which has been literally boarded up tight to keep them inside A government watcher is supposed to help them should they need anything and also shoot them if they try to escape their home prison Soon it becomes clear that everything is much worse than anyone has said.Hinsley accurately describes the symptoms of the plague and how it would affect the infected person For those who know, the symptoms aren t pretty and Hinsley is graphic in her descriptions The chapters are presented as days so you can get a feel for how quickly the plague ravages the victim Hinsley describes this as a horror novel, and rightly so The real effects of the Bubonic Plague on a person would be horrendous and the descriptions make that quite clear.Since this is a novella it is just a slice of an ordinary family s battle with the plague It is one family s struggle to survive a horrific event There is no huge backstory on how or why it started or who set a new strain of the plague loose Currently people can t spread Bubonic plague but they can pneumonic plague What makes Hinsley s story evenfrightening is that this time the plague can spread from person to person.Those who follow this sort of thing um, me know that the plague Yersinia pestis exists right now, among us, in various populations of animals prairie dogs, black footed ferrets, chipmunks, squirrels, marmots, rodents, coyotes and yes, it can jump to human hosts through a flea bite The Bubonic plague does show up from time to time today This knowledge makes Plague evenfrightening.Very Highly Recommended Certainly worth the price of 1.99 Disclosure My Kindle edition was courtesy of of the publisher for review purposes
